The Status of Thermodynamic Data and Models for CF3I and its Mixtures
Ian H. Bell, Mark O. McLinden
There is a renewed interest in the use of the refrigerant CF3I for refrigeration and air conditioning applications, driven by its low global warming potential (equivalent to CO2), and very low (but nonzero) ozone depletion potential. In this paper we will summarize the existing thermodynamic data for this fluid and investigate the status of the mixture data as well. Furthermore, as CF3I has been proposed as a component in mixtures with other refrigerants, the emphasis of this paper is on the survey of existing mixture data and an assessment of the suitability of existing thermodynamic modeling approaches and estimation schemes to model the properties of these mixtures.
